Important Notice: Home Study

Owing to the current situation, we have put in place plans for home study for our young people, to ensure that they are still able to access the full curriculum. Work will be set regularly on Class Charts by class teachers with specific instructions for individual lessons.

Pupils should aim to follow their daily timetable of five lessons per day. We would like to maintain a breadth and variety of study so there is no need to focus on any one sequence of lessons, on Showbie for example, as this may become overwhelming. Pupils should aim to complete work in line with the number of lessons per subject they have each week e.g. Spanish in Year 9 = 2 lessons per week. There should also be an additional homework task.

mw welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and Guardians,

We truly are in unprecedented times.  As we enter our fourth school week of school closure – the sixth week in total – (although I am sure that the Easter break didn’t feel much different to any other day since the “lock-down” began) I would just like to thank the amazing community of Ormskirk School for all the emails and telephone calls of support that school has received since we closed.

We are all learning together during this difficult time and we really appreciate your feedback.  I am tuned into the news every night to check for updates, but please be assured that we know as much as you all do, as to when some sort of normality will return.  However, please be assured that when the time comes for the school to re-open, we will be ready to hit the “ground running”.
